Yeah I know that a few of you hate Rat Rods. This thread will probably degenerate into a pro/con debate.
But... if built with some skill and no skulls, the cars can be interesting and fun.
One of the things I like to do is search for interesting power-plants. Straight 8's, Flathead V12's, 7-cylinder radial tank engines... etc.
Here is the ultimate Rat engine!
The aircraft is a Hawker Typhoon from WW2.
The model is the new 1/24th scale Airfix Typhoon.
The engine is an "H" 24-cylinder sleeve valve Napier Sabre water cooled and supercharged engine.
Google this for some info.
Be way cool sitting in front of a 1939 Ford coupe fenderless body wouldn't it?
